194 Farm Workers Returned To Canada For Seasonal Agricultural Work Between January To March 2022

For the period January to March 2022, one hundred and ninety- four farm workers have returned to a number of farms in Ontario and Alberta, Canada, to pursue seasonal agricultural work.

The opportunities afforded to these workers are noteworthy in light of the fact that the Farm Programme, like many government programmes, was adversely affected by the COVID-19 Pandemic in March 2020.

Minister of Labour, Stephen Mc Clashie, lauded this Programme stating “the Ministry is very pleased to be able to continue facilitating the process of sending seasonal workers to Canada.”

He said “it is part of our programme of expansion and we are looking to significantly increase the number of Trinidad and Tobago nationals who can access the Farm Programme.

Chief Manpower Officer of the Manpower Division, Eric Poliah Ministry of Labour, said the Farm Programme continues to be a mutually beneficial partnership between the Governments of Trinidad and Tobago and Canada.

Mr Poliah said despite the challenges of the pandemic, the Ministry of Labour‘s Farm Programme Unit remains committed to preparing nationals and facilitating their continuous employment.
